One of the most popular comic book characters is being outed.
Action Comics writer Grant Morrison, best known for revamping the Batman titles, said the caped crusader is "very, very gay."
Morrison made the statement in an interview with Playboy magazine. He said he thinks Batman's gayness is why people like him.
"All these women fancy him and they all wear fetish clothes and jump around rooftops to get to him," Morrison said. "He doesn't care -- he's more interested in hanging out with the old guy and the kid."
